Season’s of Life

“There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the heavens” -Ecclesiastes 3:1 While thinking about these next few months that are coming up, I have been constantly reminded that we all go through different seasons of life. I have definitely experienced this throughout my whole first year of college. Each season has brought about something new in my life. It’s really cool to see how God works through these things and brings beauty out of brokenness. This year has definitely been a rollercoaster ride, but it has been one great adventure. The fact that my freshman year is coming to an end is such a crazy thing to think[…]

7×7 Challenge

Hey Blog World! Here is a video from a cool academic event on campus called 7×7 Challenge. 7 Professors had 7 minutes to discuss an area of study that interested them, and then we in the audience voted on the most interesting or our favorite presentation. I included clips from every speaker and a few funny moments. Hope you enjoy!

Sunday Mornin’

Bloggers- Here is a video from my church a couple weeks ago. For those just tuning in, I go to Mission Church in Overland Park. This is Rachel and Wallace Fa’agutu, they are Hawaiian musicians and also children’s ministers. They have an album called “Little Songbirds” that I would STRONGLY recommend, especially if you know kids and want some fun worship music with an island influence 🙂 They also have a few other records here: http://rachelnicolemusic.com/discography/. This particular song is by Matisyahu called “Live Like a Warrior.” I’m a HUGE fan of their cover, so I hope you enjoy it[…]

A Look Back: Freshman Year

Hello friends! We are at the final week of school here at MidAmerica.  It is exciting, sad, and weird all at the same time.  It is so crazy to me how I have already been through my first year of college! It literally flew by.  I had some great memories, and I learned a lot too. So in honor of the end of school, here are some of my favorite memories =: HOMECOMING 2013 I wrote a whole blog about this night… I mean it was absolutely insane.  We got to Uptown Theater had a bunch of fun, but we[…]

Lessons I’ve Learned My 2nd Yr of College

There is an endless list of lessons I’ve learned my second year of being at MNU. However, If I named them all, I’d be writing for a week straight–no joke. So here it is–a few valuables that I think everyone can benefit from: Completing homework before Sunday. This theory sounds ridiculous. But trust me, it’s the best thing in the world. I’m not ashamed to admit it, but there has been one day this semester where I’ve actually gotten all of my homework done on a Saturday and had nothing to do on a Sunday–imagine that, having the intended Sabbath[…]

Go

Wow, life is most definitely a GO GO GO venture. This world has so much to offer and so many directions that continuously pull. Yet, I have to be reminded to take a moment and stop. Yeah you heard that right, STOP; everything. In this, we realize what God really has to offer us. Sometimes this is an opportunity. MidAmerica sends out trips every year locally, nationally, and worldwide that impact communities immensely. These range from Haiti, Arizona, and Africa. They also encompass construction, medical care, and education. The best part is that these trips are student and sponsor led.[…]

Car Problems, Jesus, and Finals

Hello friends! So this past weekend was Easter! Most people on campus went home for the holiday, but that wasn’t the case for me. I actually have had some car troubles this past weekend. This was kind of a bummer for me because I would have liked to go home and see my family over the weekend, but I’ve definitely been learning a lot through it. Not having a car has opened my eyes a lot to how much I depend on it. I have had to ask people to drive me places more during this past week than I[…]

The starts with an “F”… and it ends with an “ollow throug”

First off: I purposely left out the “h” Secondly: Friends, whether it be in class assignments, friendships, appointments, business transactions, bill payments, and probably everything else, Follow Through is critical. It’s one thing to start, one thing to begin, one thing to initiate something. It is another to follow through with whatever that thing may be. Bing.com’s dictionary has defined the phrase as follows: “finish doing something: to take further action as a consequence or extension of a previous action, especially to continue something through to completion” In other words, do and finish what you are supposed to do. Even if,[…]

The Real Reasons Why You Should Come To MNU

Not that you really need to be persuaded because, by now, we already know that MidAmerica is an outstanding university with even more outstanding students. But in case you needed to be reminded, here’s a few reasons why you should come to MNU.  1. Fact: MNU is one of the few universities that start later in the fall. So, when University A and B have to start school on the 17th, we get to start school on the 27th–say hello to four months of summer! 2. An average classroom size is 1:14 ratio–so that means plenty of one-on-one time. 😉[…]
